Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen May-02-16
29 years old, USCF rating ~1750. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

   Apr-29-16 Ultimate Blitz Challenge (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: Kasparov did train Nakamura for a while, so maybe he has a good understanding of Nakamura's strengths and weaknesses.
   Apr-28-16 Eljanov vs Li Chao, 2016
dumbgai: Tremendous game by Li Chao. If the Chessbomb clocks are accurate (probably not), he only spent one minute thinking before playing 34...e2!!

dumbgai: Mariya Muzychuk experiencing the usual post-Hou match slump.

dumbgai: Wei Yi finally appears to be back in form. With a good showing he could return to 2700+.
   Apr-21-16 D Rivera vs Hybl, 1965 (replies)
dumbgai: I figured it had to be some combination of Rxc4 and Rxb3. If white instead plays 33. bxc4, play continues 33...Rb3+ 34. Rd3 Qd4+ 35. Kd2 Rb2+ 36. Kc1 Qb6 and it looks like black should either win the queen or mate somehow, but I can't calculate that far ahead.

dumbgai: Two non-draws in a row from Giri?
   Apr-18-16 J Xiong vs Kamsky, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: Poor Kamsky is getting overtaken by the younger players, one at a time. Kamsky was already retired from chess when Xiong was born!
   Apr-07-16 Sebastien Feller
dumbgai: Looks like he's playing actively again and maintaining his low-2600s rating, albeit mostly against weaker players.
   Apr-07-16 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
dumbgai: After all, he ridiculed that invitation on his Facebook page at the time.
   Apr-01-16 P Ware vs J Grundy, 1880 (replies)
dumbgai: That $300 second prize would be worth around $7000 in today's money.
